Introduction to Taxation
In Ogden City School District funding comes from three general sources: federal, state, and local funds. Federal funds account for 16.59% of the school district's General Fund revenue and is appropriated for specific purposes. State funds account for 64.20% of the district's General Fund revenue and local funding accounts for 19.21% of the district's General Fund revenues. The majority of this local portion (75%) is from property taxes. The district must impose a minimum Basic property tax levy and contribute the proceeds of that levy to the cost of providing educational services. The more Basic Levy revenue collected, the less state funding–from the Uniform School Fund–is required.
